Halloween Candy Collection; Nativity Prep Thanksgiving Turkeys

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

Happy Halloween! In November, we have a couple of our long-standing community service projects, so I wanted to get a quick off-cycle web post up to get the word out. See below for the details, and thanks in advance for you help with these projects!

Halloween Candy Collection
We need your help, as part of our service to the community we organize the pickup of Halloween candy from local schools.  This candy is then donated to a local charity that takes it to Tijuana to distribute during their Christmas celebrations. If you are able to pick up collected candy from a local Catholic school please email us at community@ndsandiego.org.

We need volunteers to pick up candy at each school/parish and then either drop it off at Church of St. Luke (El Cajon) for the Central San Diego locations, or at a house in La Jolla for the North County locations. Some schools want the candy picked up on Nov 4th, but most want sometime the week of Nov 7-10th.

For those interested in helping with the bagging of the candy for the distribution to Case de los Pobres, There will be a party to bag the candy at a house in La Jolla at noon on Sunday, November 20th.

Miami Game Watch, Hesburgh Lecture, Buses to the USC Game

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

We’re back to the gridiron this week, and back to our usual game watch locations, see below for that. This week, I’m dropping tonight’s community service Halloween party (figuring if you’re helping you’ve already signed up) but see last week’s post if you’re looking for details. The major excitement this coming week is our annual Hesburgh Lecture on Thursday, featuring Prof. Corey Angst from the Mendoza Business School. There’s also a meet-and-greet happy-hour with Prof. Angst on Wednesday as well, definitely join us for one (or both) of these! For those wondering, we will be doing our annual candy collection and Nativity Prep Thanksgiving turkey projects, I’m just waiting for the details, and I’ll get a post up with details.

Miami Game Watch
Saturday, October 29th, 12:30 pm (Pacific Time)
Our beloved Irish return to the gridiron this week for a matchup against 4-3 Miami. Personally, I have fond memories of watching Holtz’s Irish beat the Hurricanes in dramatic fashion back in 1988 on their way to a national championship…but I digress. If you’re pessimistic about our chances given our less-than-impressive first half, note that the line on the game is nearly even (Miami is currently a 1.5-point favorite). If we have managed to improve on our defense yet again, and if we’ve somehow remembered how to mount an offense like we did the first four games (about 40 points per game), this is a winnable contest for the Irish. Join us at one of our game watch locations to watch the lads start the turnaround. You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us, you just need to love ND football. ** Important Note: Prospect Bar has changed its name to Rooftop La Jolla, but the address is the same. Here’s how to find us: Rooftop La Jolla (formerly Prospect Bar & Grill) – Downtown La Jolla • East Village Tavern + Bowl – Downtown San Diego

Halloween Party (Community), Hesburgh Lecture & Warm-Up Happy Hour, USC Buses

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

Saturday, our beloved Irish have a much-needed bye week, so no game watch this weekend. We’ll definitely be back our usual spots next weekend for the big game against “The U.” Meanwhile, next week brings our first-ever Halloween Party for the kids at Fr. Joe’s — organized by our illustrious VP and Community Service coordinator, Martin Holguin. On the heels of that, Prof. Corey Angst from ND’s Mendoza Business School will deliver a great Hesburgh Lecture and will also join us for a day-before-the-lecture meet and greet happy-hour. Finally, if you’re heading to our game vs. that cardinal-and-gold school up north, why not let the Club transport you (for a very reasonable fee). Details on all of these events are below. We hope you can make one!


Halloween Party for Kids at Fr. Joe’s Village
Friday, October 28th, 7:00pm to 10:00pm
Domer Friends and Families, we need your help and support for our next community outreach event. On October 28, Friday, at the Father Joe Village downtown San Diego (Imperial Ave) we will put on a Halloween Themed celebration for homeless and disadvantaged teens. We need a team that is willing to be creative to decorate the hall, manage the food line, and also set up a craft table full of supplies to make your own masquerade mask. We are looking at 60 to 70 total people with 50 teens and the rest support staff and volunteers. Having fun is authorized, making a positive influence on these challenged teens is welcomed, and giving this group of party goers a few hours of normalcy is the goal. We need food, music, and people the day of the event willing to enjoy
the evening (In costume would be great!). if you’re interested in volunteering or if you would like more information please contact Martin Holguin MBA ’14 at community@ndsandiego.org.

Stanford Game Watch, Halloween Party (Community), Hesburgh Lecture, USC Buses

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

Our slate of Oct-Nov events is well underway. Whether you’re a football fan, a community service volunteer, or are interested in the latest perspective on social media from the business school (or all three), we have something for you. Also if you have kids at OLP or Cathedral, or the Poway school district, we’ll have club members working the college fair tables at those events next week. Drop by and say hi!

Sanford State Game Watch
Saturday, October 15th, 4:30 pm (Pacific Time)
Well, I take back what I projected last week. I’m not sure there was anything much to learn about the team’s progress from last week’s hurricane bowl… our offense was nonexistent, but then so was NC State’s for the most part. This was thanks to defense led mainly by Mother Nature. So. This week brings a tough, but still winnable matchup with a Stanford team who has surrendered 86 points to the state of Washington while amassing only 22. Will the Irish be able to make it 3-in-a-row? If we’ve solved our defensive issues, then possibly…we certainly have the offense for those numbers. Join us to see what happens! You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us, you just need to love ND football. ** Important Note: Prospect Bar has changed its name to Rooftop La Jolla, but the address is the same. Here’s how to find us: Rooftop La Jolla (formerly Prospect Bar & Grill) – Downtown La Jolla • East Village Tavern + Bowl – Downtown San Diego

NC State Game Watch, Fall Crawl (Saturday!) and Domerpreneurs (10/12)

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

As we get ready for another hot & sunny weekend, our thoughts turn to the folks on the East Coast who are facing a much different weekend. We hope that impact to people and property is as minimal as possible. Here in San Diego, we’ve got three great events coming up in the next week, see below for details.

NC State Game Watch
Saturday, October 8th, 9:00 am (Pacific Time)
After a win-through-more-offense game last week, this week’s game should show if we’re making any progress on the defensive side. We’ve only faced NC State once before, in the Gator Bowl during Tyrone Willingham’s first season. The outcome was a rather decisive loss. NC State is #37 in scoring defense, so it seems unlikely we’ll pile up another 50 points, as they are allowing only 21 points per game. Yes, their opponents have not been top-25 caliber, and yes, their one loss was vs. 2-3 East Carolina, so this contest shouldn’t be as tough as the two that will follow (Stanford & Miami). What this game should be is a measure of progress, and an indicator of how our October will go. Note that there is still some risk to the game time, given the severe weather which will be hitting the East Cost this weekend, so check your favorite sports websites to confirm we’re still on for our 9am (Pacific Time) start. You don’t need to be a club member, ND grad or even San Diego resident to join us, you just need to love ND football. ** Important Note: Prospect Bar has changed its name to Rooftop La Jolla, but the address is the same. Here’s how to find us: Rooftop La Jolla (formerly Prospect Bar & Grill) – Downtown La Jolla • East Village Tavern + Bowl – Downtown San Diego

8th Annual Fall Crawl (FB Link)
Saturday, October 8th, 11:30am (registration); Noon (start)
Every year, our (mostly young) alumni compete with other local alumni groups in this annual tradition organized by the Duke club. Join Young Alumni coordinators Jackie Rodriguez ’10 and Roger Sammon ’14 as they lead the Irish team to victory. Stops along the crawl will include Basic (starting point), EVTB, Knotty Barrel, Bootlegger, Social Tap, The Deck at Moonshine Flats (In that order). Your $15 ($20 at the door) includes pizza at Basic, plus a specialty drink at TWO different pub crawl locations, plus drink specials at ALL locations, plus a raffle ticket for prizes at ALL locations, plus a souvenir item (limited to the first 100 people that register so register soon!) plus an afternoon of fun with awesome young professional peeps in San Diego! The event will probably max out their 150 person capacity, so get your registration in early. You do not need to be officially a young alum to participate, by the way. Register at this link, and feel free to drop a note to Jackie & Brendan to know to look for you via the youngalumni@ndsandiego.org e-mail address.

Domerpreneurs visit Turquoise Barn Cider!
Wednesday, October 12th, 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Turquoise Barn Cider, 955 Maple Street, Ramona, CA 92065
Cost: Free! (appetizers provided by the club)
